Default [Q] kies on linux mint 16

recently went to linux mint 16 os. something ive found is i cant get any samsung drivers to work. ive tried using wine as well but i get an error message about halfway through installation. any advice? im looking to re root and probably flash the leak (im on 4.3) ive been looking around in the linus forums for quite a while and no success so i figured maybe an android dev site would have some advice. thanks
